Thread: Not verified, but pretty cool to think about:

    Things that make you think a little:
    There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq in January.
    In the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the
    month of January.That's just one American city,
    about as deadly as the entire war-torn country of Iraq.
    When some claim that President Bush shouldn't
    have started this war, state the following:
    a. FDR led us into World War II.
    b. Germany never attacked us; Japan did.
    >From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost ...
    an average of 112,500 per year.
    c. Truman finished that war and started one in Korea.
    North Korea never attacked us.
    >From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost ...
    an average of 18,334 per year.
    d John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962.
    Vietnam never attacked us.
    e. Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire.
    >From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost ..
    an average of 5,800 per year.
    f. Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent.
    Bosnia never attacked us.
    He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three
    times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on
    multiple occasions.
    g. In the years since terrorists attacked us , President Bush
    has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled
    al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran, and North
    Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who
    slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.
    The Democrats are complaining
    about how long the war is taking.
    It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno
    to take the Branch Davidian compound.
    That was a 51-day operation.
    We've been looking for evidence for chemical weapons
    in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find
    the Rose Law Firm billing records.
    It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the
    Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard
    than it took Ted Kennedy to call the police after his
    Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick
    It took less time to take Iraq than it took
    to count the votes in Florida!!!!
    Our Commander-In-Chief is doing a GREAT JOB!
    The Military morale is high!
    The biased media hopes we are too ignorant
    to realize the facts
    But Wait . there's more!

    Some people still don't understand why military personnel
    do what they do for a living. This exchange between
    Senators John Glenn and Senator Howard Metzenbaum
    is worth reading. Not only is it a pretty impressive
    impromptu speech, but it's also a good example of one
    man's explanation of why men and women in the armed
    services do what they do for a living.
    This IS a typical, though sad, example of what
    some who have never served think of the military.
    Senator Metzenbaum (speaking to Senator Glenn):
    "How can you run for Senate
    when you've never held a real job?"
    Senator Glenn (D-Ohio):
    "I served 23 years in the United States Marine Corps.
    I served through two wars. I flew 149 missions.
    My plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire on 12 different
    occasions. I was in the space program. It wasn't my
    checkbook, Howard; it was my life on the line. It was
    not a nine-to-five job, where I took time off to take the
    daily cash receipts to the bank."
    "I ask you to go with me ... as I went the other day...
    to a veteran's hospital and look those men ...
    with their mangled bodies . in the eye, and tell THEM
    they didn't hold a job!
    You go with me to the Space Program at NASA
    and go, as I have gone, to the widows and Orphans
    of Ed White, Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee...
    and you look those kids in the eye and tell them
    that their DADS didn't hold a job.
    You go with me on Memorial Day and you stand in
    Arlington National Cemetery, where I have more friends
    buried than I'd like to remember, and you watch
    those waving flags
    You stand there, and you think about this nation,
    and you tell ME that those people didn't have a job?
    What about you?"
    For those who don't remember ..
    During W.W.II, Howard Metzenbaum was an attorney
    representing the Communist Party in the USA.
    Now he's a Senator!
    If you can read this, thank a teacher.
    If you are reading it in English thank a Veteran.

    When you consider that the death by gunfire rate is higher in many of the major cities in the U.S. than the total death rate in Iraq, it make you realize that our young men are better off being over there.
